A four-cornered woven hat made by expert weavers of the Wari (or Huari) culture of Peru packs a lot of identity into a small garment—if you know how to read its clues. Join Ellen Hoobler, William B. Ziff Jr., Associate Curator of Art of the Americas, and Joy Davis, Manager of Adult and Community Programs, for a conversation about the hat’s identification as a pre-Columbian work and what the term pre-Columbian means. They also discuss how we interpret and construct knowledge about the cultures of the indigenous Americas.

The link to access the program will be posted here approximately 1 week before the start of the event.
